Please Welcome Adam Goetz to USD #489!! I am a new CTE teacher at HMS and HHS this year. I will be teaching woodworking, technical applications, and some shop classes. I am a Hays Native, graduating from Hays High in 2010. I received my bachelor's degree from FHSU in 2014 and have been working in the construction industry ever since. I have a lot of experience with home designing, project management, and estimation of projects. My wife and I have two daughters and we are very excited for this new journey. I am looking forward to giving back to the district that gave me a love for woodworking at such a young age. A random tidbit about me is I love going to the lake and could spend all day on a boat! #EveryStudentEveryDay489

Please Welcome Amy Schmidt!! My position with USD #489 is 7th Grade ELA and Reading! I've been teaching at Western Plains for the past nine years. My husband and I have lived in Hays for the past three years and just welcomed our first baby in March, so the (MUCH) shorter commute will be amazing!! I'm excited to work in the community where I live, and I'm very excited to meet my students and form relationships with everyone at the school! It seems like a great and happy place to work and I love being a part of a positive environment. A random tidbit…. Our family LOVES to travel! #EveryStudentEveryDay489

Please Welcome Becky Hickert!!! I am so excited to serve our community as an Assistant Principal at Hays High! I grew up in Hays and am so grateful for the warm welcome back "home!" I earned a BS in Math/Life Sciences and a BS in Secondary Education from Kansas State University, and my Master's Degree in School Counseling and Building Leadership from FHSU. Prior to returning to Hays I spent 15 years at Junction City High School as a math teacher, school counselor, and administrator. I am most looking forward to meeting and connecting with the whole HHS Family—students, staff, families, and community members—and spending time in classrooms with our students and teachers engaged in learning! My passion for education lies in helping each and every student to be successful in high school and to prepare and plan for their post-high school goals—through strong academic and social-emotional programs and community partnerships for early workplace and college experiences. I am thrilled to be a part of this district and am honored to help continue to build upon the strong foundations that are already in place here. Random fun facts--I love to cook and try new cuisines, and I was a Ballroom Dance instructor at K-State for 11 years! #EveryStudentEveryDay489

Please Welcome Melanie McDonough!! I’m excited to fill the brand new Hays High Computer Based Learning Instructor/Coordinator position. I was born and raised a Kansas girl and grew up just down the road from Hays. My husband was raised in Kansas as well. After graduating from Pitt State, we moved to Colorado and stayed for 25 years. We moved back home in June 2020, choosing Hays as a central location to be close to both our families. I’ll be starting my 26th year as a public educator with most of my experience as a middle and high school English Language Arts teacher. I’ve filled many roles throughout my career, but providing student support is my passion. I’m excited to be part of the positive opportunities this new program will provide our students! Outside of school, you will probably find me with my family. My husband, daughter, son, (and dog) are my everything! I also enjoy off-roading (mostly sand dunes), volleyball, kickboxing, and decorating. #EveryStudentEveryDay489

Please Welcome Megan Beiker!! What is your position with USD #489? I am teaching 8th grade English and Language arts at Hays Middle School. Where are you coming from….a little background information would be great! I actually grew up in the Hays area but I move to Hoxie in 2014 to teach 7th, 8th, and 9th grade English/Language arts at Hoxie Jr/Sr. High School. What are you most excited about here at USD #489? So far, everyone I’ve met in the district is so kind and helpful! I can truly feel the camaraderie among the employees in this district. I’m also excited to be a part of the HMS staff and to get to know my colleagues as well as my students and their families. A random tidbit ..

Together, we have a Boston Terrier named Marvin. #EveryStudentEveryDay489
